It has been a busy summer and I have not carved anything for most of the summer. The other day I finally sat down and carved a character and for the most part since it has been so long I am somewhat happy with the end result. I started with the idea that he was going to be a pilot but he looks more like an early auto racer or just a horseless carriage driver. But he could also be a barnstormer so will ponder this as I carve out the rest of his bust.
A great example of having a true convictions and perspective on balancing life and carving check out Gene Messer and the path he is currently walking. You can also throw up a prayer for him as he goes down this new path. I welcome prayers as well that I hold true to my convictions as well. To quote the Robertson boys, yes I am a fan of the Quack Pack, it’s all about “faith, family, and ducks”. Of course you can replace ducks with carving or include it alongside them if you are so inclined.
